->''"They are a unit; they even share the same name."''
-->-- Description of '''[=MasterBlaster=]''', ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome''

Two (or more) characters who, for all intents and purposes, act as one character, always appear together and are never introduced individually. Even if there are frequent disagreements between the members of TheDividual, they will act as one entity as soon as the {{Plot}} moves on.

There are two types:

* '''The Twindividual''': The individuals making up TheDividual are near-identical or very similar in at least one but usually several aspects (appearance, character traits, way of talking, job etc.). Sometimes, the twindividuals' members differ in some conspicuous way (for example: [[FatAndSkinny one fat, one skinny]]) but are still uniform in all other ways. FinishingEachOthersSentences is not uncommon among twindividuals.
* '''The Syndividual''': The individuals of which TheDividual consists have different looks and character traits but form a symbiotic relationship. Often their character types complement each other in some (comedic) way. They might have a division of labor thing going on, for example with one character being the spokesperson of the dividual.

The defining characteristic that sets a syndividual apart from a twindividual is the symbiotic aspect: a twindividual is just a homogenous crowd while a syndividual has a specific shtick with distinct roles. As a rule of thumb, twindividuals are based on the principle of BirdsOfAFeather while OppositesAttract in syndividuals.

Typically, TheDividual is a background character or part of an EnsembleCast but another frequent setup is something similar to an AdventureDuo where the two main characters form a dividual. This setup heavily restricts the available plots as the two main characters must always act as one in relation to other characters. In those cases, the work's name will often be simply the characters' names, "Alice and Bob"-fashion.

Might overlap with HeterosexualLifePartners and ThoseTwoGuys. SingleMindedTwins is a subtrope. Compare LiteralSplitPersonality, HiveMind and IAmLegion. If the members of TheDividual are twins, expect any number of TwinTropes (especially SingleMindedTwins) to be in place. Sometimes, TheDividual will exhibit TwinTropes despite the fact that its members are not twins. For a romantic couple that is often referred to by a single name, see PortmanteauCoupleName.

!! Twindividual Examples:


[[folder: Anime And Manga ]]
* [[OutlawCouple Isaac and Miria]] from ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' share an entry on [[Characters/{{Baccano}} the cast page]]. People within the series get the same impression as well, so much so that the mere fact that Miria shows up to the Genoard mansion alone in ''Alice in Jails'' alerts Jacuzzi's gang that something has gone ''very'' wrong (namely, that [[spoiler:Isaac was arrested and sent to Alcatraz]]).
* Mairu and Kururi from ''{{Durarara}}'' (from the same author as ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'') are twins who don't even consider themselves as individuals. [[Characters/DurararaAnimeSupporting They too share an entry on the cast page]].
** [[ThoseTwoGuys Walker and Erika]] from ''{{Durarara}}'' also count. They share [[Characters/DurararaMainCharacters an entry on the cast page]] as well.
* Emi and Yumi from ''IrresponsibleCaptainTylor''.
* ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub''[='=]s Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin appear to be interchangeable, and in fact it later becomes a minor plot point that [[spoiler: no one can tell them apart except Haruhi]]. They occasionally exhibit signs of being annoyed by this, but mostly seem to accept that to everyone else, they are a collective.
** Later in the series, however, the two begin to diverge from each other, and even start to hit notes of SiblingYinYang - once Kaoru starts to realize [[{{Deconstruction}} how dangerously codependent they've become]] and how limited they've allowed their world to be. Once they start to act individually it becomes apparent that Kaoru is [[RedOniBlueOni much more reasonable and calm]], if somewhat self-deprecating, and Hikaru is more aggressive and selfish, mostly because of his {{Tsundere}} personality; in other words, their TricksterTwins act was some compromise between them, making Kaoru less pleasant and Hikaru more.
* Usagi and Minako in the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' anime aren't quite this because they're not together all the time and are more or less just ordinary friends, but that doesn't keep them from doing the SingleMindedTwins routine many times. They also look quite similar (namely because Minako was meant to be Usagi's decoy).
** It's a bit of a DevelopmentGag, since Minako is from the ''Manga/CodeNameSailorV'' manga, which was a prototype for Manga/SailorMoon.
* [[BrotherSisterTeam Sora and Shiro]] takes this [[UpToEleven to the extreme]] in ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife''. They're nearly invincible when playing together, but if they get separated even briefly they'll instantly have nervous breakdowns.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* Dupont and Dupond from ''Franchise/{{Tintin}}'' (Thomson and Thompson for the English-speakers.)
* [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Huey, Dewie and Louie]]. The fact that they have all the exact same personality, and are impossible to tell apart without their hats, means that they're basically one boy with three bodies. Subverted in a ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' episode, when one of them decides to leave TheDividual.
** Even ''Duck Tales'' has it less than the early comics, where their dialogue was one speech bubble with three arrows, when they weren't FinishingEachOthersSentences instead.
** And completely averted in ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'', by which point they had undergone DivergentCharacterEvolution.
* {{Non Player Character}}s Bartémulius and Nostariat from ''ComicBook/{{Noob}}''.
* In ''Comicbook/LegionOfSuperHeroes,'' Triplicate Girl's alien race the Carggites have the natural ability to split into three identical bodies. In most continuities, each group of three is treated as a Dividual. But the Post Zero Hour version of Triplicate Girl, named Triad, was persecuted by Carggite society because her three selves had distinct personalities (one aggressive, one submissive, and one balanced between the two). Her aunt secretly had the same condition and claimed that this was actually the natural state for Carggites, and that their culture's insistence on making each person's parts act like a Dividual was cruel and harmful.

[[folder: Film ]]
* The albino ghost twins in ''Film/TheMatrixReloaded''. They're identical twins that dress alike, fight in concert and can't seem to say an entire sentence without the other's help. As they're constructs of the Matrix, they're probably either one partially corrupt program or copies of each other. The trios of Agents do a lot of this, too.
* Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd from the ''Film/JamesBond'' film ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''. They hang out together, they work together, they are ''always'' together.
* The Bimbettes (Gaston's fangirls) trio in "Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast" are, for all intents and purposes, a single entity.

[[folder: Literature ]]
* Fred and George, the Weasley twins in ''Literature/HarryPotter''. Fred is the more outgoing one and George is slightly more reserved, but it's easy to miss considering they share a love of colourful pranks and are almost always together. Until ''Deathly Hallows'', that is, [[spoiler:when George is nearly killed and Fred has to deal with his brother's potential death. Then George gets his taste of this when Fred is actually killed.]]
** Example of characters who are not literal twins: Crabbe and Goyle [[spoiler: until book 7]].
* "Samneric" from ''Literature/LordOfTheFlies''. That's right, the two are referred to by ''one name.''
* The At Dawn twins from ''Literature/GivesLight''.
* The clone society in ''Literature/WhereLateTheSweetBirdsSang'' by Kate Wilhelm likes to view its various clone "families" this way. Their society starts to fall apart when a few members start to rediscover individuality.
* In the sci-fi detective novel ''Emissaries of the Dead'', the cylinked twins Oscin and Skye Porrinyard are this. They're very similar in appearance, except that one is male and one is female, and through cybernetic modification, they essentially have one merged consciousness.
* WordOfGod notes that [[CoDragons the three Ravers]] of the ''Literature/ChroniclesOfThomasCovenant'' are like this; Donaldson envisioned them as "perfect minions" and so never bothered giving them distinct personalities or motivations, so they'd be completely interchangeable; as far as the plot is concerned, they might as well be one creature that can be in three places at once. To add another layer, they're also all pretty much lesser copies of their boss, [[BigBad Lord]] [[GodOfEvil Foul]].
* Uncle Prudent and Phil Evans are a syndividual in Creator/JulesVerne's ''Literature/RoburTheConqueror''.
* Caramon and Raistlin in ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'', at least at the start. Sure, their personalities are different, and sure there's a lot of one-way arguing going on, but the moment there is danger, they take action like a single person.
* This trope's OlderThanPrint: Sir Gareth and Sir Gaheris from ''LeMorteDArthur'' and various other Arthurian legends are the two youngest Orkney brothers. Aside from Gareth's brief stint as hero of his own tale in Malory's version, the two are so closely associated that it's not always clear which one is speaking, which barely matters as they're never shown to hold a separate opinion and even ultimately die in the same way for the same cause. In some versions they even marry near-identical sisters, though their wives' personalities very much reflect SiblingYinYang, in contrast to their own closeness in temperament. Some scholars now believe that this might be due to Gareth and Gaheris starting out as a single character who got divided in two due to a transmission error.
%% * Shaunee and Erin from ''Literature/TheHouseOfNight.'' They even ''refer'' to each other as Twin, and the only real significant difference between them is that Shaunee is black and Erin is white.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* The [[MeaningfulName Bynars]] of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' are a species of twindividuals.
%%* The different Cylon models in ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined''.
* {{Invoked}} in the ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' episode "My Fairy Tale", where Carla and Turk merge into one annoying two-headed monster.
* The trio of jocks from ''Series/StudentBodies''. The cartoon shots even depict them as a single person with three heads.
* ''LiveAction/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'': Bulk and Skull ''could'' appear separately, but it would fall flat as they feed off each other so much that neither alone functions as a character. To be fair, there were two other punks (a chick with messy hair and a black guy) that hung out with them early on, but they [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome vanished without explanation]] after appearing in two episodes and had ''no'' lines ''at all''.
* ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'' has Gem and Gemma, a pair of [[HalfIdenticalTwins half identical]] [[SingleMindedTwins single minded]] twins who can't even talk without [[FinishingEachOthersSentences the other around]]. Well, until she gets a boyfriend, after which the HiveMind breaks whenever he's involved.
* Ed and Larry from ''Series/TheWestWing''. It was occasionally lampshaded that the main characters couldn't remember which of them was which.


[[folder: Tabletop Game ]]
* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' gives us Alpharius Omegon, the Primarch of the Alpha Legion. In reality they were Alpharius and Omegon, who were identical twins and are described as "two bodies, but one soul". As their combat doctrine focused on espionage, deception, and covert ops, force they frequently switched places for their own ends; and to complicate matters, the entire Alpha Legion ''also'' looks like them, and one of their calling cards was that each one identified themselves as "Alpharius". When they interacted with other members of the Imperium formally, Alpharius was the public face, while Omegon's existence was one of the best kept secrets in the galaxy. This is so extreme that one, both, or neither of them may have died shortly after the Heresy, and no one knows which.
* ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'' had a Sabbat only artificial bloodline [[MadScientist created by Tzimisce]], the Blood Brothers. They actually straddle the line between Twindividual and Syndividual, since Blood Brother groups tended to have more than two members, who would look identical, have similar personalities and generally act as one organism, to the point of [[BodyHorror lending each other blood, limbs and other body parts]].

[[folder: Theatre ]]
* The River City School Board in ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'': Ewart Dunlop, Oliver Hix, Jacey Squires and Olin Britt. As Harold Hill says, "you'll never see one of those men without the other three."
* The two "Nieces" in ''Theatre/PeterGrimes'' almost never do anything separately, and sing mostly in unison, harmony or canon with each other.
* Exaggerated in ''The Gondoliers'' by Creator/GilbertAndSullivan, where Marco and Giuseppe become the King of Barataria until it can be settled which one of them it really is, and they make comical attempts to act "as one individual."
* Rosencrantz and Guildenstern from [[JustForFun/TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples Shakespeare's]] ''{{Theatre/Hamlet}}'' are treated as this. Their interchangeability and uniformity is hinted at by Shakespeare in the very choice of their names, which exhibit the same metric properties and ethnic background. Their dividuality is further [[PlayingWithATrope played with]] in ''Theatre/RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead'', to the point that two characters can't agree on which one is which.

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* Elle and Ille from ''RioRainbowGate'', twin girls in PlayboyBunny outfits who work at a Casino. Ille always repeats the last word/phrase Elle says.
* Thorn and Zorn from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX''. In fact, they're ''literally'' one person, as shown when they rejoin into Meltagemini for their boss fight.
* Morris and Derek, background dancers from ''VideoGame/EliteBeatAgents''.
* [[VideoGame/IceClimber Popo and Nana]] in their appearance in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', though they weren't like this in their original game.
* The Twins in ''VideoGame/TheCave'' control and act exactly the same as any single other character.
* The Luteces, brother-and-sister inventors of Columbia's floating city technology in ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' always appear side by side, snarking at each other and at Dewitt. They are identical in almost every way, same clothes, same mode of speech, same age, same builds - except one is male (Robert) and one is female (Rosalind). [[spoiler:It's later revealed that they're not brother and sister. They're the same person but from different dimensions - one born male, one born female.]]
* The DeWinter Sisters in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' seem to have this relationship - never being seen without one another and operating as co-right hands to Loren. [[spoiler:At least until Kiki's death, that is]]

[[folder: Webcomics ]]
* Sisters Rosalie and Marie in ''SisterClaire''.
* The Cotyorites (Proxenus, Nicarchus, and Clearchus) from ''TheLydianOption'' are highly similar looking members of a philosopher race that appear together (and complete dialogue together).

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Bartémulius and Nostariat from ''Franchise/{{Noob}}'', the pair of InsufferableGenius alchemists that are a recurring QuestGiver and EscortMission charge in the franchise. The only time Bartémulius was seen alone was in the webseries version, when Nostariat's actress couldn't show up for filming. While they are FatAndSkinny in addition to being different sexes, their lines of dialogue tend to be quite similar.

[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* Andy and Ollie Pesto from ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers''.
--> '''Andy''' Back to you Ollie!
--> '''Ollie''' Back to you Andy!
--> '''Andy''' Back to you Ollie!
* Terri and Sherri from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', the CreepyTwins in Bart's class. It's never made clear which is which. They even go to the model UN as Trinidad and Tobago (a single country). However, they do insist that they're individuals, and Bart apparently has a crush on one of them.
-->'''Both''': I'm Sherri, she's Terri.
** One episode even uses the line "Sherri, but not Terri" as a gag by itself.
** Rod and Todd Flanders, despite a two year age gap.
* Katie and Sadie from ''TotalDramaIsland'' aren't related, but they look and act so similar that they could be mistaken for twins.
* Dee Dee from ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'': twins so of one purpose that they're only considered a single supervillain.
* ''{{Superjail}}'''s Twins are always together and display identical personalities and motives. It's shown that trying to separate them or make them ''not'' do something together will only upset them.
* Tad and Chad from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'' are almost identical twins except [[SaltAndPepper one of them is white and the other is black]] and are usually treated like a single person. In one episode they both ran for class president as a single candidate and won.
* The Bully Brothers from ''ThePerilsOfPenelopePitstop.''
* Duke and Earl, [[KingLeonardoAndHisShortSubjects King Leonardo's]] twin nephews.
* Peepeye, Poopeye, Pupeye and Pipeye, the lookalike nephews of {{Popeye}}. In the Famous Studio shorts, their verbal tic was starting a sentence then sending it to the next down the line to the last person for completion.

[[folder: Real Life ]]
* [[http://andrewandrewdotcom.com Andrew Andrew]]
* Much to their annoyance, many RealLife twins are viewed this way by people who haven't gotten to know them as individuals.


!! Syndividual Examples:

[[folder: Anime And Manga ]]
* The Light Card and the Dark Card in Manga/CardcaptorSakura. You can probably guess what they do. They wear white and black, respectively. Cardcaptors must engage them as a unit. They ask to be sealed together, and Sakura does so.
* Muto Ashirogi in ''Manga/{{Bakuman}}'' is a two man team consisting of Moritaka Mashiro and Akito Takagi, who have been nigh inseparable since middle school. Mashiro is an artist and Takagi is a writer, and most of the other authors in ''ShonenJump'' (Or ''[[BlandNameProduct Shonen Jack]]'' in the anime) treat them similar to a single entity.
* The protagonists of ''LightNovel/NoGameNoLife'', Blank, cannot be apart or they'll suffer something similar to withdrawal symptoms. However, the pair is basically unstoppable when together. To emphasize this, the two are dissimilar to each other in terms of everything, such as age, gender, colour scheme, specializations, etc.

[[folder: Comic Books ]]
* GoldDigger: One issue in the TournamentArc featured a "duo individual", which basically means that a punch-specialist and a kick-specialist can literally band together and compliment each other's strengths, in a duel no less. The only drawback is that separating the two is an automatic win condition, something that one of the specialists has to be yelled at about before she stops the gluttonous "overtime".

[[folder:Films -- Animation]]
* [[EnthrallingSiren The Dazzlings]] from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks'' are this. They all have distinct personalities (Adagio is the [[ManipulativeBastard scheming]] [[AlphaBitch leader]], Aria is the [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]], surly [[BetaBitch second-in-command]] and [[EnsembleDarkhorse Sonata Dusk]] is the [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} spaced-out]], [[TheDitz ditzy]] one and obviously the bottom of the heap), but they're never seen apart and function, story-wise, as a single unit.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* TheViewAskewniverse as created by Creator/KevinSmith has Jay and Silent Bob.
* In ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome'', "[=MasterBlaster=]" is literally treated as one person, until the title character unmasks the pair for what they are.
%%* Creator/LaurelAndHardy.

[[folder: Literature ]]
* ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}'' has [[MisterXAndMisterY Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar]], ThoseTwoBadGuys. They take their partnership seriously enough that [[spoiler:when Mr. Croup is sucked through a gateway into what is likely hell, Mr. Vandemar voluntarily follows him.]]
* Bone and Chair, the stand-ins for TheMadHatter and the March Hare in Patrick Senecal's ''Aliss.'' Bone, the more intelligent of the two, is in charge, while Chair provides the muscle. They're very much ThoseTwoBadGuys, and their arrival on any scene generates a guaranteed OhCrap, given the [[BodyHorror usual result]].
* Gestalt from The Chequy Files: The Rook is actually one person in multiple bodies.

[[folder: Live Action TV ]]
* ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}'' Jerry and George try to pull this off for one episode to be a woman's boyfriend. Jerry does the actual dating while George manages schedules and anniversaries. Their theory is that between the two of them they might be able to accomplish the tasks of one mature adult male.
* Creator/PennAndTeller, on TV, in film, on stage, etc. They're so closely associated in all media that it's almost a subversion to see them separate, for example, Penn on his personal video blog or Teller lecturing at conventions.
* ''BetterOffTed'': Phil and Lem, the lab workers. Often used explicitly as a gag.
* In ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', Agents Leo Fitz and Jemma Simmons spend enough time together that they are referred to by pretty much everybody (up to and including Director Fury) as "Fitzsimmons" (And occasionally it's "Fitzsimmons ''is''..." rather than "Fitzsimmons ''are''..."). They even sort of refer to themselves this way, using "we" a lot and automatically operating under the assumption that they feel the same way about everything (e.g. "He was our favorite professor"). Although they are both scientists, they fulfill separate roles, specializing in engineering and biochem, respectively. Their personalities are also shown to be [[RedOniBlueOni opposing but complementary]] in many respects.

[[folder: Newspaper Comics ]]
* Richandamy from ''ComicStrip/{{Zits}}'' are an extreme example: they're only physically separated when they HAVE to be (such as separate classes), and have been seen literally contorting and stretching superhumanly to be together even then. During a temporary breakup the others were literally ''unable'' to call them by their separate names, as in it caused Jeremy physical pain to do so.

[[folder: Radio ]]
* [[CampGay Julian and Sandy]] from ''Radio/RoundTheHorne''.

[[folder: Video Games ]]
* Sam & Max have this dynamic in the ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice'' game series. Sam is generally the character controlled by the player (until the third season of the Telltale games, when the player takes control of Max when his newly-discovered psychic abilities are called for), but both ''VideoGame/SamAndMaxHitTheRoad'' and various episodes of the Telltale games require Max to solve a puzzle (in ''Hit the Road'', he can actually be used as an item).
* Game units will sometimes be syndividuals, for example the Goblin Alchemist HeroUnit of ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} 3'', a goblin carried around by an ogre. The ogre hits things and the goblin throws potions, and both get speaking lines. Same with Dwarf mortar teams from the Alliance.
* Reno and Rude from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''.
* ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'''s Kyoko Needleworker and Asuka Cranekick, Raspberyl's GirlPosse.
* Gomar and Shioh from the ''VideoGame/{{F-Zero}}'' games.
* Mr. Right and Mr. Left in ''Videogame/IMissTheSunrise''. Even their names imply they are never seen apart.
* DualBoss Gorc and Pic from ''VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga.
* ''VideoGame/MapleStory'' has Zero, a pair of twins who make up a single playable class. Their individual names are Alpha and Beta, although you'd never know it given how rarely they're referred to as separate entities outside of their story quest.
* This is the case with Zen and Rei in ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth'' - they function as a single unit, and only take up a single spot in the party roster. Zen casts offensive magic, while Rei casts curative magic. [[spoiler:Late game spoilers reveal that Rei could only use her curative magic when she's near Zen, as said magic was originally Zen's to begin with. Also, after the player completes the fourth labrynth, Rei is kidnapped and Zen becomes a standalone party member.]]
** Also the case for Ken and Koromaru in ''VideoGame/Persona4Arena''.
* Many of the characters in ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' belong to this trope.
** In its sequel, ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'', ''every'' independent unit is a Dividual. Solo units do exist, but must be "equipped" to a dual unit in order to take part in battle.
* In the ''Videogame/SuperSmashBros'' series, the character of Videogame/DuckHunt (or Duck Hunt Duo in Europe) consists of the duck, the dog and the hunter, all playable as a single unit.
* In ''Videogame/HotlineMiami2WrongNumber'', Alex and Ash are siblings that are controlled as a single unit, with Alex standing in front with a chainsaw and Ash behind her with guns. If one of them dies, the other drops their weapon and surrenders.

[[folder: Web Comics ]]
* Zimmy and Gamma from ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Given a deconstruction, to an extent. Zimmy goes to lengths to make Gamma subservient to her.

[[folder: Web Original ]]
* Slash and Agito from ''DarwinsSoldiers''.

[[folder: Western Animation ]]
* Carl and Lenny from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' span the whole range of this trope. Early on the show they form a borderline twindividual (different looks but identical nondescript characterization), later on, they sometimes were treated as a bickering syndividual (and HeterosexualLifePartners), and at some point, the writers decided to deconstruct their dividual to facetiously emphasize the characters' (non-existent) individuality - only to reconstruct it for a throw-away gag in the next episode.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Ratatouille}}'', {{invoked}} by Remy and Linguini, who deliberately become this.
* [[ExaggeratedTrope Exaggerated]] in the title character(s) of ''CatDog''.
* The title characters of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' are almost always together and, while both technical and creative geniuses, have nearly opposite personalities (Phineas being [[CheerfulChild active and talkative]], Ferb being [[TheQuietOne passive and mostly silent]]).
* In ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'', the other kids seem to think of the Eds like this. When one of the protagonists does something to anger the other kids, they'll punish the three uniformly despite their lack of involvement. Additionally, when they attempted to join the Urban Rangers, they were given one chance for each badge for the three of them.
** [[AbhorrentAdmirer The Kanker Sisters]] look different enough from each other to raise questions about whether they're biologically related... and sure enough, one episode makes it clear that they all have different fathers. It still doesn't stop them from being nearly identical (other than their individual preference within the titular trio) in the early episodes. The youngest one, May, starts to break the mold a bit later on.
* [[ThoseTwoGuys Walter and Perry]] in ''HomeMovies'' almost always dress alike, have very similar high-pitched voices, and are always seen together, [[AmbiguouslyGay usually holding hands.]]
* Mr. Wink and Mr. Fibb in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' are never seen apart, even when they're not doing villainy, like watching TV. Of course, they're based on Mr. Wint and Mr. Kidd from ''Film/DiamondsAreForever''.
** Taken UpToEleven, however, are the five Delightful Children from Down the Lane. They are five kids from different families, but they function as an individual. They stick close enough together that they're in physical contact with each other, never separate (except on two occasions, which become major plot points for those episodes), occupy the same seat at school, and even speak in unison. The only reason why they aren't a HiveMind is that their actions and reactions become different from each other when panicked—otherwise, they're on identical mental wavelengths.
* Frix and Frax in ''ComicBook/BuckyOHareAndTheToadWars''. They almost never appear separately.
* The Weird Sisters on ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' always show up, act, and are treated as a single unit. Each of them, however, is somewhat specialized- [[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold Phoebe]] symbolizes grace, [[MysticalWhiteHair Luna]] symbolizes fate, and [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette Selene]] symbolizes vengeance. Which of the three is directing the Sisters' actions [[WildCard varies]].
